Yawn.

This is more interesting. But also blue-ball inducing, if you follow my drift.

Ducks 56-14.

      Yes… Beavs score first.

      But then we get a boost by keeping Nikegon from scoring triple digits at the end of the game (as if Helfrich would allow anything beyond 50 or 60 with another game coming up).

      98-3 with a blocked FG to end the game!

    Watching Wazzu/UCSB in the Great Alaska Shootout. 34-12 UCSB at half. Wazzu is HORRIBLE. Beavs could easily beat them right now. Coincidentally the beavs play UCSB on Dec 30 @ Gill.

        USC is bad too. ASU has two good players and a terrible coach. CU, SU, Utah and UCLA are all good but Jekyll and Hyde. UW is a step below them all but experienced together. And Cal is a step below that but also Jekyll and Hyde. Zony is just plain good. And Nikegon is much better than expected… probably at UW’s level but with more size and athleticism.

    Hopefully this is Riley’s last game at OSU. If he still wants to coach he can enter the mix for the Portland State job and save us a lot of money. Then within 2 months from now I would love it if we announce the hiring of Utah St.’s Matt Wells. Wells utilizing McMarion at QB next year could get 8 wins and have us in the Holiday Bowl. Riley would max out at 5 again in another losing season.

      5 wins next season is pretty generous for a team breaking in a new quarterback with very little experience. I could see another 3-9 season like we had a few years ago when Mannion was a freshman

        3 wins possible but 4 or 5 probably most likely. Nonconference should be pretty easy and add 1 of 9 Pac-12 games and you got 4 wins. That better be enough to end Riley’s time at OSU. If not we are totally pathetic. PSU is looking for an AD and coach. Unload BDC and Riley and we have a perfect situation for major upgrades. Wells and Massari works for me.

          My thinking around Riley is “what factors could lead to his retiring sooner than later” and then a lot of patience. A 5-7 season with 3 games close in the 4th quarter is not going to move BDC’s barometer one iota.

          … that adds very little to the conversation as it was begun 1000 posts ago… with the same idea… months/years ago.

          Only the prospective names change with the “hot list” of coaches out there… not even enough thought and care to go out and research beyond those lists to see if there is someone else out there who might be decent.

    Gonna be closer than above. Helfrich wants Riley in place forever. The duck cheerleaders and coaches sons will play. Ok, they cant, but you get the idea. They will impose some self discipline — Freeman only runs backwards and Mariota runs plays with his eyes closed.

          Thanks for the link to the 64bit build but I have a few questions about what I should download.

          How can I tell which of the files I should be downloading? The first 2 have 64 in the file name and the others don’t so I’m assuming that the second two are 32bit.

          The first two have the same date-time stamp but one is identified as “latest” while the other isn’t. So is “latest” the one I should be downloading?

            Yes, either of the first two. My guess is the one “latest” is the latest stable build (I’d DL that one) and the one above it is probably a beta. x86 is always 32-bit for future reference (confusing, but it references the old 8086 CPU).

    If it wasn’t clear I’m much more of a basketball guy. Anyway, in a fantasy world, how would you renovate/remodel Gill? I personally think it’s really ugly and as a recruit I’d be kind of turned off by the stadium (but turned back by the coach, the practice facility, the academic support, and the campus).

    Looking at some other stadiums like Gill, it doesn’t have to be all newfangled. But the gyms at FAMU (Lawson Center), Duke (Cameron Indoor), and Butler (Hinkle Fieldhouse) have me interested in what you can update with the current model. Replacing the upper bench seats with chairs, put chairs behind each basket, keep the student section bleacher style, putting a scoreboard hanging over the middle of the court, and making all the signs and bathroom signs stuff on the outside concourse look like they belong in this century would be a good mix.

    Structurally, that probably isn’t even possible, but a man can dream can’t he?

      I like Gill’s old school feel. I’d move the students to the opposite sideline so theyre in the camera shot for tv games. Perhaps add some more chairback seats, but otherwise that atmosphere takes care of itself omce the team starts winning and the crowd starts filling the seats. Its a pretty loud arena when full.

            We didn’t beat Zony that year… in three tries. I think we came within 10 points at home, but we got pasted by them at Tucson and even worse in the Pac Tourney. Besides, Iguodala went to the NBA the previous year. We did beat them at home in 2004.

            That must’ve been the year then. We had David Lucas on that team. IIRC the final was 90-81 or 90-84. Too many years have passed and way too many napkins. But Gill was loud that night

      Concourse improvements would be nice…. like opening the concessions everywhere maybe?

      A central scoreboard would also be good. You mentioned Cameron Indoor. It’s not better than Gill. But it does hang a four-way scoreboard over center court as of a couple years ago. And they added air-conditioning about 10 years ago. But that’s about it.

      Oh… they win a lot.

      I personally hate chair backs. I can find more leg room in coach on a really cheap airline. I would like to be able to pay enough for season tickets where I want to sit and have them remove the stupid chair backs so I can actually sit in the damn seats. Cameron has chair backs above the pull-outs. While it’s visually appealing when empty, they suck for anyone over 6’0″. And it’s not like anyone is sitting in them once the games begin. Cameron also has the same issue Pauly had before Pauly was redone. They run the upper levels well past the end lines and way out into the corners. So there are a bunch of seats in those areas with terrible sight lines.

      I would paint the remaining bench seats orange instead of that drab grey they are now. And I would paint the girders and other structural elements black for contrast. There’s no reason for us to have khaki walls and ceilings.

      I would replace the lighting and sound. And in doing the latter I would replace the hanging stacks over center court with a four way scoreboard. Then I would make the end scoreboard areas full video screens (with, of course, half of their space being taken up by permanent ads).

      I would look into the possibility of hanging the baskets instead of the stanchions we have now, but that’s not a huge concern.

      And I would move the media section up into the north upper reaches with a dedicated camera platform in front of it… and all the bells and whistles for new tech to be accessed in that area. I realize we would need wheelchair access to the media area, but something can be done to remedy that quite easily (not cheaply, but easily).

      No end seating… and no more damn chair backs.

    Sad thing is last year could have been a victory against the Quacks, but the defense couldn’t get that one last stop (notice the one time they did it this year, it was a win against ASU). Given that a senior led defense was expected to be the strength this year and ended up a disappointment, I really think BDC needs to pressure Riley to get rid of Banker.

    Maybe Riley will get pissed at that and just quit, rather than fire his friend. Otherwise, BDC is not going to fire Riley, that’s just fantasy. Riley will retire, but it’s a matter of when.

    Beavers will play their best game of the year tomorrow. Beavers lead by 3 with 2 minutes left, have a 4th and 1 at the Oregon 10 with a chance to end it with a first down, Riley elects for the conservative FG. Oregon gets the ball down 6, goes down and scores TD and kicks XP for win with 3 seconds left. Everyone on AngryBeavs then jumps off the nearest bridge and Riley is praised for his brilliance in the loss.

      The Beavs play a hell of an inspired game. Mike Riley is more animated than ever — even Angry and Jack are heard to mumble … “what the fuck?”. But late in the game our Riley collapses and exits in an ambulance. Beavs lose and later, our Riley retires, citing a mystery illness he has been fighting for years. Sympathy and kudos from the Pollyannas is ass deep to a man in a jeep. Only at AngryBeavs is the question asked… WHAT ILLNESS?

        Utah St. plays Boise St. at 7:15 on ESPN2. So after watching Riley get taken to the woodshed for the 7th straight Civil War turn it over there and check out a great candidate for a new and far superior direction for our program. If the Civil War isn’t tight probably 2/3 or more of the fanbase would support such needed change. Riley has already been given too much time for too poor of results that are getting progressively worse.

          For 1.5 to close to 2 million compared to 600K? You bet. I actually think Oregon State would be his top pick of various possible openings if we talked with him. OSU has some similarities with USU. He would thrive here if given the chance for the next 7 or so years. Staying with Riley any longer will only further divide and diminish our fanbase. Wells like Numbers stated above would unite and excite the base. It would be a healthy new beginning with a rising premier coach who has proven he can recruit and win in bunches.

            Hate to crush your Matt Wells dreams, but hiring him would come with a hefty buyout of his previous contract, in the $3.5M range. That’s in addition to whatever offer the Beavs would be able to muster up to lure him. Couple that with a Riley buyout and…….well……sorry…..Al Reser isn’t coming through the doors of the Valley Football Center with a big check to make that happen.

            Even if Riley retired today after the game, the Beavs would still be too stubborn to pay a competitive salary and buyout Well’s old deal. Maybe in a few years, after the buyout shrinks, I could see it happening, except Wells will be coaching for some other Power 5 school by that time.

            Two options: Wells buyout expires on 7/1/15.

            1) Have Bray as interim and hire Wells on 7/1 ready to go next year with no buyout. First year no one is expecting 9 wins anyway.

            2) Riley most likely gets next year anyway but very good chance it is another losing season. That would be 5 of the last 6 years that were not winning seasons during the regular season which is uber horrible. Then you could hire Wells immediately after next year’s 8th straight Civil War defeat with no buyout.

            90% of the fanbase should want Riley gone at that point. May be best to announce Riley won’t be back a few weeks before the season ends like Florida did so we can be quick to move on Wells before another P5 program snags him. Best opportunity for a great coach the Beavs are likely to see in the next decade.

    OK guys, here it is, big game tonight.

    I sort of hope that UO crapped their pants when AZ won, and the Ducks might overlook tonight’s game.

    That said, I really think our players have a great opportunity here, and if they stay disciplined on defense and aggressive on offense, we’ll hang around until late in the game, then who knows what might happen?

    The x factor could be weather, as it seems there is a realistic shot of some snow/rain mix, which could be the great equalizer?

    I’ve seen some crazy games in my day, and I’ve learned to not ever count out the Beavs, especially at Reser as a decided underdog.

    ASU was supposed to plow us too, but we took their names!

    Actual talk and discussion about the game around the fairgrounds is almost non existent because well, you know why. This is just an excuse to gather with great friends under a canopy in a gravel parking lot and drink home brew and eat various smoked meats. Sad really… that apathy is setting in

      Mariota has hit maybe four guys “in stride.” The problem is that three of them have been so wide open that they could adjust well before the ball got there. He’s not hitting many in the catch radius properly. And he can’t make that sideline toss.

      But the announcer loves his “rocket/NFL” arm and that it’s “highly accurate.” Chuckles!

            Watch the outside receivers… usually to the short side. They rarely come inside the numbers between each play, as they are mandated by a rule.

            There are a couple other plays that are common rule-breaking, like holding or blocking in the back when running off the edges. It just makes for an ugly game… and not football.

            One might say, “You can’t blow a whistle every time those plays happen. That would slow the game to a grind.”

            One would be correct, and I believe that’s a part of Chip Kelly’s genius. If the refs actually manage to keep up with the play (which they do not), then they would feel guilty about calling every infraction Kelly’s offenses commit because they would be on every other play. So they call one every once in a while… usually on an already unproductive play.

        To me, it seemed as if Hallice Cooke’s departure (and his tweet) was the tipping point for BDC to finally fire CR. I’ve also wondered about Ed Ray’s part in the firing. My point being – a few recruits bowing out (although some don’t have any other offers) and perhaps a player transfer or two might, in addition to non-existent ticket sales, force the issue. If Riley is greedy enough to insist on the buy-out, one can only hope for a way to do it.

    Think about a Matt Wells hire or someone nearly as good as that. By bringing them in shortly after Tinkle we would have a great pair of coaches in the major sports to look forward to for the next 7 or more years. Like building a great sports team. If you can have Jordan (Wells) and Pippen (Tinkle) on the same team and at similar stages in their career where you can build something truly special than that is the best possible scenario you should be shooting for. All this nonsense would be over and we could be in a great place for nearly a decade to come with coaches on the rise. How could this shit from Riley possibly be preferable?!?

        Then Bray’s gotta take some heat. Everyone seems high on him and Brennan but are they as good as we’d like to think? We like that they’re young and seemed to be engaged by LB’s waiting 3 seconds post snap before reacting!? WTF!

    Boise St. is extremely tough at home unlike the Beavs. Brian Harsin also would be a huge upgrade over Riley. Wells and Harsin should get serious looks in the coming weeks as well as others. Anyone next year but Riley. Him coming back will spell doom for this program. Stadium will be over half empty. People are done with this staff.

          I have some inside info but can’t divulge it is code for I can’t win this argument. Not only is Riley a piss poor coach but he looks physically off kilter to me.

          DeCareless should have done what Pat Summit did when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. He’s not only incompetent but he’s also a selfish ego maniac hanging on when the baton should have been passed. I’m on record here as only wishing him well against his fight with Parkinson’s but lately it’s almost like he’s leveraging his fight in order to defend his mistakes and get an extension. I can’t believe the guy’s serious about trying to milk the University for another few years.

            DA loves a Riley who is no longer present. The current Riley is slow, unimaginative, incompetant, a poor recruiter, and in general a terrible coach. Also, he is clearly demented, as the legacy he once built is slipping away with every season he hangs on. If he doesnt retire soon, he will be run out of town. Its a shame, but inevitable. So he continuing is a clear sign of dementia. Someone close to him needs to talk some sense into him….

          He was saying that fans on twitter don’t know enough about football to intelligently criticize Riley (or any coach). Honestly, If you think you know more than DA about football I’m not sure that I believe you.

          Most general fans of football can’t make many more observations other than “things aren’t working,” and they are pretty much just guessing the reasons why.

            That’s pretty much bullshit. It’s not a complicated game, and anyone who says it is may be straining their brain a little too hard.

            It is pretty much an old boys’ club in terms of who gets to coach on the levels where people get paid big money. So that may elicit an illusion that it’s “hard” to understand.

            Since the general public never gets a chance to try, the general public obviously can’t do it. Sound logic, that.

            Judging by just about every home game, most of the crowd knows time management better than all of our coaches combined… apparently. Think back over time and tell who the most knowledgeable TV announcers were. Were they former football players? Were they trained journalists. Was it a mixed bag?

            The last couldn’t possibly be true. I’d much rather listen to Troy Aikman talk about football than someone like a Howard Cosell.

            Holy crap that last sentence is so very far from true it’s not funny.

    One takeaway, FWIW, the D didn’t look as gassed as I expected in the second half; DB’s out of position and LB’s unable to cover receivers. But, the D overall didn’t seem as gassed as I remember in past encounters with a team which plays at a good pace.
    Not that it matters, and I admit I may be mistaken…and, they don’t have nearly the speed of the ucks…oh well.
